Urban Decay says :
For your inner artist: a set of pocket-sized 24/7 Shadow Pencils that make it easy to line, shade, and smudge like a pro. (In shades that inspire addiction.)
What I say:
First, I say that this set is $12. Yes, only $12!
Second, I tend to be lazy when it comes to eye shadow. I'm not one who likes to use 5 or 6 different shadows. It's time consuming and the more makeup I add, the sillier I look. Any one of these pencils can be used alone to achieve a pretty eye look. I lean toward using the neutral shades as a wash of color, blended across the eyelid. Occasionally I use the purple and turquoise as a liner.
Third, they are very creamy and smooth.They don't drag or pull on your eyelid and they are super easy to use! You literally draw it on and blend the edges with your fingertip .Do blend quickly though, it doesn't take long for these to set. And once it's set, it's not going anywhere. Which leads me to....
Fourth, the staying power of these pencils is incredible! My eyelids area little wrinkled and a little hooded. For me it's a given that eye shadow will crease on me. Well, these babies DO NOT CREASE! They last until you take them off!
Fifth, the colors are are very wearable. Even the brighter shades can be easily worn as an eyeliner for a 'pop' of color.

This is a great set at a great price! Because of the ease of use and the staying power, these pencils would make a great addition to your spring/summer make up repertoire.
